Plan to Direct Stranded Refugees to Palestine: Committee Appointed

Download PDF for this date

Plans to direct the large number of Jewish refugees stranded in various ports in Europe were considered at a joint meeting of the Zionist Org/of America and the HIAS. The Zionist Organization was represented by Mr. Ab. Golkdberg, Chairman, Isaac Meister, Treasurer and Judge Rosenblatt, vice-Chairman. The HIAS was represented by Mr/A. Rosenblatt, Harry P. Fierst, Mr/Osofsky, Jacob Masel. During the discussion it was evident that both organizations are favorably inclined to lend themselves toward the solution of the refugee question. The plan proposed that the Hias furnish transportation facilities for the refugees to Palestine, while the Zionist Organization would assume responsibility upon their arrival in the country. A committee consisting of Judge Rosenblatt, Isaac Meister and Harry P. Fierst and Jacob Masel was appointed to work out a plan of action to be taken.
